Half Nelson

“You who are content in the places you have made—whose children, perhaps are like olive branches round about your table, whose wives wear silk and purple, and whose husbands’ love has no bitterness—you who have created these homes on the road to the House of Many Mansions—first of all rejoice. You have a half nelson on the many-splendored thing.”
